In Nursery we took advantage of the fantastic weather this week to take part in our own water fun day.
All the children came prepared with their own water pistols and sprayers ready to soak their friends.
Everyone had so much fun and got really, really wet!
For World Book Day we read the Norwegian fairy tale ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’.
After reading the story we all described what we thought about the troll, and we didn’t think he was very nice.
We then talked about the three goats and thought about which one we would like to be.
After choosing either the big, middle or little Billy Goats Gruff, we used glue to stick our faces on to the goats body and then added two pipe cleaner to give us some horns.
In Nursery this week we are learning a few things about Italy.
Today we looked at some of the amazing buildings, including the Leaning Tower of Pisa. As Italy is also famous for its love of pasta, we decided to make our own pictures of the Leaning Tower of Pisa using lots of pasta pieces.
In case you can’t remember, here is what the real Leaning Tower of Pisa looks like
And here are some of our Leaning Towers of ‘Pasta’
The pictures are so good that it’s hard to tell the difference between our pasta pictures and the photo of the real thing!

We read the story of Little Lumpty and talked about how he felt at different times during the story. We noticed that he felt happy, sad, excited, scared, and upset at different times during story.
We then made our own Little Lumpty eggs by taking photos of our faces showing a different emotion and sticking them on to a piece of egg shaped card. We then used a hole punch to make four holes in our egg and threaded through 2 pipe cleaners to make some arms and legs.
We all look egg-cellent!
As part of our spooky week in Nursery, we made our own slime. The children really enjoyed exploring how it moved and felt on their hands as they pushed and pulled and rolled and squashed it.
We all had the slime of our lives!
